Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at knmic1012@aol.com and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

As Promised...I'm Back With The Rest Of My Easter Cards

Good Morning...As Promised, I'm back with the rest of my Easter cards...Whoo-Hoo...that's TWO postings in one week! I was hesitant to post this first one because it didn't photograph well at all. The background is washed out but the oval Spellbinder frame, the shroud on the cross and the butterfly is in your face bright. No matter what settings I used on the camera it turned out the same...HORRIBLE---  
This one didn't turn out much better. You can't tell from the picture but the flowers and eggs are printed twice, once on the background , then again cut and popped---
And finally, Pooh Bear Bunny for our Disney friends, Kathi and Bob. I hope they have received it, it was mailed on Monday---
Now with Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day and Easter out of the way, maybe I will have a little more time  to work on something new and different. Until next time...Enjoy your day! Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter!

Once AGAIN...I Am Finding Myself Apologizing For Being A BAD Blogger

Good Morning...Thanks for stopping by. I hope you had a great weekend. Once again I am finding myself apologizing for being a bad blogger. It seems like there just isn't enough hours in the day and I am finding myself on the Internet less and less. I have a couple more Easter cards to do but I wanted to share with you the ones I have already done. For the most part, they were done with my Silhouette--

 Oh yes...here's the St. Patrick's Day card I made for our Disney lovin' friends Kathi and Bob---
That's it for now...I won't promise when I'll be back to post the rest of my Easter cards but will try to get back before Easter. Till then...Enjoy your day and thanks again for stopping by!

A Few Cards Since My Last Posting and Information on Silhouette Blades

Good Morning! Yep, it's me...I'm alive and well. Sorry it has been sooooo long since my last posting. I just don't have the countless hours like I used to, to spend on the Internet. Many of you know that I recently got a Silhouette Cameo. Not being a newbie to the world of cutting machines, when the machine wouldn't cut a straight line without tearing the paper, I knew there was a problem so I called Silhouette. They sent me a new blade and mat and I was back in business. I was ready to cut my losses and set the machine along side of my Cricut and Gazelle to collect dust when I had gone through 2 blades and only made 3 cards.That was when my blogger friend Sandi came along. She turned me on to the Silhouette forum where I learned of a blade alternative. A little confused as to which blade to order, I emailed Mark with Elkin Creek Vinyls, he responded within minutes advising me which blades and blade holder would work best in my Silhouette Cameo. I had my new blades and holder within 2 days and couldn't be happier. If you are a Silhouette owner, you know how pricey the blades are..The blades from Elkin Creek  are precision blades and the holders fit perfectly in the Silhouette. Don't let your Silhouette sit to collect dust, contact Mark...he will fix your right up...you won't find better blades or customer service ANYWHERE! My blogger friend Kim from New Jersey gave me a tip on resticking the Silhouette mats (which are also pricey)...diluted Aleene's Tack It Over and Over...works great! With the combination of blades and mats, I'm good to go and LOVE my Silhouette!
Here are a few of the cards I've made since my last posting...not my best work, but they'll have to do. I'm going to have to post and run...if you need more information, don't hesitate to email me---   
These next 3 are for our granddaughters in Tennessee. Since we don't get to see them as much as we would like, we send them a little cash from time to time. Yeah, Hello Kitty with a mustache is on the corny side. Our middle granddaughter Chloe loves Hello Kitty but recently is into mustaches...go figure--
We're off to watch the twins today...See you next time! Enjoy your day and have a great rest of the week!
